Cloud wig help! D=
Post By LintuwolfWiing. 25/11/08, 06:28 am

Okay, so I'm cosplaying as Cloud for next years Chchgeddon and I'm stuck. Where do I find a wig?! I don't even know where to start. Do I need a really long wig for cutting and anti-gravatying, or a shorter one?
ARG!
Please help V.V

you can buy cloud wigs off ebay... Just make sure you get the convertion of the price right XD
or try trade me, if you wanna try style it yourself buy a long wig then cut it, this is so you know you will be ok with length.

umm really what the hell was i looking at then XDXD

budget HairSpray & TRESemme (Heat tamer protective spray) is your friend...
i brought the TRESemme just for the bottal but its really good it makes the wig shine and tangle less.
I used both of these to style my Halibel wig & fix my Road wig so i can say they work great ^^

EDIT: OH i see i was looking at the pricey ONE XD XD money dosn't really bother me when im looking for other ppl...

the options as I see it are-

~ go on e-bay and either buy crappy cloud wig, or amazing cloud wig that breaks your bank
~ buy a wig that's longer than cloud's hair, print out some ref pics & take it to a hair dresser
~ buy a long wig (maybe a punky from cosworx? those are awesome to style *o*) in the right colour, search around on coscom for some tutorials and style it yourself :3

options 1 & 2 are the easiest, but the most expensive and probably won't produce as good a result.

option 3 is good, yet daunting & kinda hard. BUT. Tutorials should help :)

here are a few to get you started -

omg that Cloud wig on ebay looks realllllly good @w@

BUT WTF SO EXPENSIVE Dx

i reckon its best if you just buy a short scruffy styled wig and then style it yourself...if you dont trust your own hair styling skills..xD fins someone who you know can style hair or...you could always take it to the hair dresser? lmao xDD but yeah cut it yourself is the best choice i think xD and its not that hard, you can find lots of tutorials on how to style those wigs, especially on cosplay.com

and yeah hairspray <3 <3 xDD but it would be good if you got your hands on some of that hair glue stuff though ;/ but i have no idea where you can get them in NZ >__<

Man that wig looks good! Shocked

Oh thanks everyone ^^
I think what I'm going to do is get a long-ish wig and ask my mums friend(Who is a hairdresser) to help me out. XD

If you're talking about *the* scruffy (the cosworx one), I wouldn't touch it with a long pole for a cloud wig. It's far too short for a Cloud wig. The easiest wigs to do spikey styles with are punkys, because the hair's already standing up - but it sounds like you've already figured out what you're gunna do anyway, so I'll shut up. XD

EDIT: Oh yes, and using spiking glue on the tips of the spikes really helps the spikes to stay together. :3
